Cool Public schools for foreigners in Australia

My name is Lili and I'm an ESL teacher in CHile. I'm turning 29 this year and my son is turning 11. I want to leave my country in January and get a job there. For what I've heard it doesn't seem so difficult for me to start a life there, or at least work for a couple of years. The only problem is that I don't want to leave without my son and I was told education is not free for foreigners. Is that true? Is there somebody who can help me through this? Thanks a lot!

Had a couple of similar questions recently Lily and pretty sure it'll be the same as for residents re primary/secondary schooling and foreign student fees kick in for tertiary education.

But your biggest hurdle could be what type of visa you yourself can get re being able to teach ESL, though Chile may now be on the special Working Holiday List [Standard WHV have a restriction re not for people with dependants], and if that is what yo're looking at you'd need to check dependants restrictions.

And if it was ESL you planned to get employment in here, not sure how good the demand will be, especially with economic downturn.
